The next concert to be given by The Saint James’s Singers will be a performance of Joseph Haydn’s Oratorio The Creation. This will be performed on Saturday, 3 June at St Mary’s Church, Warwick.
The Creation is considered by many to be Haydn’s masterpiece. The oratorio depicts and celebrates the creation of the world as described in the Book of Genesis. Haydn was inspired to write a large oratorio during his visits to England in 1791–1792 and 1794–1795, when he heard the large scale oratorios of Handel.
The first public performance was held in Vienna at the old Burgtheater on 19 March 1799.
